  1. Goodbye

    Mark Rylance, Michaela Coel, Mary Berry and Nadiya Hussain

    Thank you for joining us this evening for the Bafta Television Awards 2016.

    If you've missed any of the ceremony tonight, have a look at the full list of winners.

    You can also scroll down to see how the night unfolded, from the red carpet arrivals and the jaw-dropping dresses to the politically charged speeches and the big winners of the night.

    We've had plenty of tweets over the last few hours from viewers wondering why their favourite shows weren't even nominated. In most cases, it's because recent shows such as The Night Manager were too late for the eligibility period. But don't worry, we're pretty confident they'll be well represented next year.

    See you in 2017!

    (Judging by some tweets you've sent us this evening, fans of the show were not best pleased that there was no new episode this week because of the Baftas ceremony, but it's back with the finale next Sunday.)

    Fred Sirieix

    Fred Sirieix, maitre d in the restaurant where Channel 4's First Dates is filmed (and self-appointed relationship expert), has been talking about what he's learned during the series.

    He was speaking backstage after the show's win in the reality and constructed factual category:

    Quote Message: I've really enjoyed it, it's been a great learning curve for me... but one thing is it reminds me of what is important in life, in business, in love, common values, making a lot of effort and of course, compromise... we're off to get pissed!
  6. Tributes paid to Wood, Wogan and Corbett

    A break from the awards now as the Baftas pay tribute to the famous faces the entertainment industry has sadly lost in the past year:

    Quote Message: This is a series that answers the question that it's okay to change, you will still be loved. Go for your authentic self, be who you are, to hell with the consequences. Live, love, be free.
